In 2000, Mike Hampton helped the Mets win the National League pennant.  After the Mets lost the World Series to the Yankees, Hampton left New York for the better school systems in Colorado.  (The $121 million given to him over the course of the eight years he signed for had nothing to do with it.)

The New York Mets have seen darker days than this; the midnight massacre in which Tom Seaver was traded away comes to mind.  Another bad time for the Mets and their fan base was in the early 90’s when the Mets had the worst team that money could buy followed by the failure of Generation […]

It’s a beautiful time to do that right now as Spring Training is heating up, and there’s already so much swirling around Mets camp to consider and debate.

It seems the Cincinnati Reds are interested in acquiring Gary Matthews Jr according to Michael Baron at www.metsblog.com. With Carlos Beltran out until perhaps June, both Matthews and Angel Pagan will be battling for time in center field. Could this be the foot in the door the Mets need to make a deal for Bronson […]
